Romania's first openly gay act brought his best foot forward on 'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2, but fans don't think his act was worthy enough and has the caliber to advance to the next round. 

'America's Got Talent: The Champions' Season 2 is back for its final audition episode, and 10 acts will perform for a chance to advance to the semifinals. The 10 acts that will perform this week are Connie Talbot, Bars and Melody, Strauss Serpent, Silhouettes, JJ Pantano, Sandou Trio Russian Bar, Emil Rengle, Voices of Service, Christian and Percy, and Brian King Joseph.

Judges Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Alesha Dixon and Heidi Klum take their seats as judges once again. Hosted by Terry Crews, two acts with the highest votes from the superfans will advance to the semifinals. One act will be saved by the judges and advance to the semifinals. And one lucky act that impresses the judges the most will receive the golden buzzer and advance directly to the finale.

Emil Rengle won 'Romania's Got Talent' in 2018 and his season was controversial because he was the first openly gay act to appear in the series. This week he entered the stage with a red rubber one-piece and heels and danced to Billie Eilish's 'Bad Guy'. While Alesha and Heidi enjoyed his act, Simon and Howie thought otherwise and pressed the X for him.



 

While Simon shared that he appreciates him and his message, he added that “it’s not the caliber to be the best of the best.” And this time fans agree as they claim his act is not a million dollars worth. 

Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "His performance was horrible. Not worth $1M.Why must he go through because he's gay? #agt #AGTCHAMPIONS." Adding to that another said, "What in the hell was that? Was Romania on drugs when they voted him the winner? That was a big waste of time. The only thing I liked was the song. #AGTChampi[email protected]

"His performance wasn't anything special #AGTChampions," shared a fan. While another said, "I hope Emil Rengle does NOT go through. I see no talent there. I totally agree with Simon and Howie. Please do not send him through."



 

"Wearing high heels and or dancing in them is not a talent. Sorry. I expected more...better. #AGTChampions," shared a fan.
